Just another reason to live in Oregon

Attention Oregonian photographers: and you know who you are. An amazing opportunity from the Ford Foundation awaits, and you don’t even have to indulge in stop motion animation or video:

As part of a new five-year, $3.5 million visual arts program designed to help enhance the quality of artistic endeavor and work by Oregon’s most promising visual artists and to improve the state’s visual arts ecology, the Ford Family Foundation has announced that it is accepting applications for three unrestricted Hallie Ford Fellowships.

The fellowships, each in the amount of $25,000, will be awarded to visual artists in Oregon who have demonstrated a depth of sophisticated practice and potential for significant future accomplishment.

With the exception of film, video, and animation, the foundation will accept applications from any visual arts medium. In keeping with the donor’s interests, the program will begin by emphasizing the more classic disciplines. Application is open to visual artists in Oregon actively producing new work in the fields of fine art and contemporary craft.

Applicant must have been a full-time resident of Oregon for at least thirty-six months prior to the application deadline, be 30 years of age or older, have evidence of seven or more years of active professional participation in his or her medium, and must not be enrolled in a degree-seeking program.

The foundation will announce guidelines and begin accepting applications for other components of the visual arts program later this year.
